••»» 



When someone young and full of life is taken from us, 
we feel a deep loss. So it was when our friend and 
former classmate Linda Stone passed away. She 
was an active member of our class and also partici- 
pated in many community affairs. Her magnetic 
personality gained for her the friendship and respect 
of everyone with whom she came in contact. Her 
unfailing courage was an inspiration to those who 
knew her. Despite her illness she worked diligently 
and ranked second in our class. With fond memories, 
we, the class of 1966, proudly dedicate this year's 
TATTLER to Linda Stone. 



A year at Williamsburg High School can be a richly 
rewarding and satisfying experience. It means man! 
things to many students. It is despair --not making 
the cheering squad; joy- -landing a role in the schoc 
play; it is failure- -losing a track meet; and success 
making the honor roll. The year is wonderful becauj 
of the unique days that are its components, from th( 
first day when students return to classes with re- 
newed vigor and a lively curiosity, to graduation whj 
seniors are awarded their diplomas and fully realize 
that they must venture into the unknown world. The! 
hub-bub and bustle in the hall at the passing of 
classes, the pungent smells escaping from the 
chemistry lab, the voices of one's teachers which 
become so familiar during the year, the faces of 
classmates in the halls, classrooms, and study hallj 
all these things share in forming the school year as 1 
we know it.

The Tear Begins . . . 



As the year begins, life at Williamsburg High 
School has both serious and amusing aspects . 
Students queue up outside Mr . Feiker's office 
for the important task of revising their schedules 
to remove conflicts . After text books have been 
distributed, the Student Council initiates its first 
project of the year, that of selling book covers .

However, school life is not all seriousness. On 
October 1, the Freshman Class endured the 
indignities of Haze Day, delighting the upperclass- 
men with their unique and often hilarious costumes 
Freshman Reception was held that night. Nancy 
McAvoy was a very capable Mistress of Cere- 
monies, and the freshmen provided the entertain- 
ment of the evening.

Tattler Officers 



This year the TATTLER has undergone 
several changes in an attempt to make our 
yearbook as fresh and modern as the sixties 
in which we live. Last spring the editors 
of the current TATTLER spent an informa- 
tive day at the annual Yearbook Conference 
at Springfield College to learn this modern 
technique. The major point stressed was 
the fact that the yearbook is not just a 
classbook but exactly what its name 
implies- -a book about a year. Hence we 
have omitted the passe' class will, prophecy, 
nicknames, and other such features, and 
have included more pictures of the year's 
events to make our yearbook interesting to 
every student, not just the seniors. 

The staff has been fortunate to have the 
guidance of Mrs. Packard and has worked 
hard in the "cubby hole" --the yearbook 
office --to make this year's TATTLER the 
best ever.

interesting events which have taken place 
or will take place in Williamsburg High 
School. In this way the Press Club serves as 
a link between the school and the com- 
munity. Membership in the Press Club is 
made up of all class secretaries and any 
other interested students who wish to join. 
The members of the Club for this year 1965 
and 1966 are Sylvia Culver, Richard Eaton,

and John Dufresne. SECOND ROW: RobertBeebe, manager; Paul Elmes, Jim Taylor, RichardHutch- 
ins, Dave Grills, coach; Ken Stone, Curt Mercier, Tim Daggett, and Don Grey. 

The 1965 Cross Country Team performed well against stiff competition from larger schools in the 
Northern Division of the Western Massachusetts Interscholastic Cross Country Association. The team 
compiled a three and four won and loss record placing them fifth in the final League standings. 

In every meet except against Greenfield the efforts of sophomores Messeck, Graves, and Gorham 
produced three Williamsburg boys among the first five finishers. However, the all important depth 
so necessary for highly successful cross country teams was lacking and this resulted in losing several 
closely-contested meets. Consistent performances by sophomore Alan Golash and freshman David 
Graves also provide much hope for the future success of Williamsburg's cross-country teams. 



The highlight of the season was the Third Annual Regional Cross-Country Meet at the University of 
Massachusetts in Amherst. Warren Messeck and Bill Graves each won a silver medal when they 
placed ninth and thirteenth respectively in a field of 119 schoolboy runners. The team turned in a 
respectable performance at this Regional Meet, finishing sixth among seventeen competing schools.

Student Guides 



Student Council Directed Parents at Open Hoi 



The Student Guides of Williamsburg High 
School are a necessary part of an average 
school day. Their job is to enforce the rules 
of both the Student Council and Mr. Buss. The 
Guides have been performing their job faith- 
fully for five years and are now a permanent 
and independent feature in our school's 
facilities. It would be hard to imagine the 
confusion of our now crowded hallways if all 
the Guides were absent even for a single day. 
On the whole, the student body of Williams- 
burg High School cooperates with the Guides 
to make the least number of traffic snarls 
possible. 

Mr. Buss, the faculty, and the Student 
Council have their work cut out for them in 
choosing students to be Guides. Although 
some Guides have been chosen from the lower 
classes, members of the Guides are usually 
juniors or seniors because in these years stu- 
dents are more mature .

The Student Council is an organization created to promote 
better student -faculty relations and interest in school 
activities . The council sponsors numerous projects to carry 
out its purposes. These projects include assemblies, trans- 
portation to tournament basketball games, and the annual car 
wash .

Dramatic Club Presents Our Town . . . 

Although success stories are sometimes hard to come by, the 
production of OUR TOWN, presented by the Dramatics Club, 
has to be termed one. Work on this three -act play started 
in early October. From then on there was a tight schedule; 
rehearsals were held every night until five -thirty or six; a 
sense of professionalism was introduced by this practice. 
It was not felt to be the extracurricular "go home and forget 
it" project, but instead more of an important job that 
demanded responsibility and work from everyone concerned.

Opening night was soon upon us. Nervous- 
ness, strange as it may seem, did not 
claim any victims. Feeling "dressed-up" 
in our costumes provided by the able props 
committee and with make-up that completed 
our characterizations, we went on stage. 
As a result of the fine job of directing done 
by Mrs. Margaret Halberstadt and Mrs. 
Sue Trowbridge we had the assurance to do 
a successful job.

The Science Club Is Active Throughout the Tear 



The Science Club under the guidance of Mrs. 
Belck and Mr. Mercer began its activities in 
the fall with a hike to Lily Pond in Goshen to 
view wild life in our own area . Among the 
other fall programs were two films on 
cancer and a film and lecture on the Audubon 
Society at Smith College. 

Once a month during the remainder of the year 
the club visited various places of scientific 
interest. The agenda this year included a trip 
to Monsanto in Ludlow, a tour of the General 
Electric plant in Pittsfield, and a conservation 
hike. The club also saw films on careers in 
science. 

As usual a major expedition was taken at the 
end of the year as a "reward" to those members 
who participated in at least five activities during 
the year. The year's trip was to Cape Cod to 
spend not only an enjoyable day at the beach 
but also to examine natural life at the sea 
shore.

Glee Club Sings at Christmas Assembly 

Highlighted by the arrival of Santa Claus, the Christmas Assembly provided relax- 
ation for students and faculty alike and set the spirit for the coming holiday. Presi- 
dent of the Student Council, Janis Donovan, opened the assembly. The installation of. 
the student council officers and representatives followed the reading of the Christmal 
story from the Bible. After carols by the Junior High, Robert Daggett sang "What 
Child Is This", accompanied on the piano by Miss Olive Healy. The assembly closed 
with best wishes for the Christmas season from the principal, Donald J. Buss. 

Although we do not have a very extensive music program at Williamsburg High Schot 
there are some musical activities in which students may participate. The Glee Club 
performs at many assemblies and graduation. This year Robert Daggett has been 
selected to sing in the All -State Music Festival in Fitchburg. Under the able super- 
vision of Miss Olive Healy, several enjoyable music programs are conducted.

The Williamsburg girls' basketball team, with 
Mrs. Evelyn Kmit coaching, enjoyed a success- 
ful season, winning eleven games and losing 
five. One of our outstanding victories was by 
one point over Amherst Regional High School, 
whom we have not defeated since 1963. The 
rest of the season showed this same keen com- 
petition and a commendable display of team 
effort and good sportsmanship. 

This year the team was invited to participate 
in the Western Massachusetts Girls' Tournament 
at Frontier Regional, where we received a tro- 
phy for second place in the B division. 

Through graduation the team will lose the first 
string senior forwards: Jane Parsons, Sue Otis, 
Jean Batura, and Nancy Merritt. However, we 
feel that the promising junior girls will exper- 
ience another victorious season.

"Be True to Your School" 

rhe 1965-66 edition of varsity basketball produced 
1 disappointing 4 and 15 record and finished in a 
lie for the cellar in its first year of participation 
•ithe Bi -County League. During the season the 
tarn suffered a 12 game losing streak, the long- 
[st in Coach Earl Tonet's tenure at Williamsburg. 
«i all fairness, the team played some good ball 
Jut was the victim of inconsistency and inexper- 
ience in addition to dreaded injuries and illness 
If key players. 

llie outlook for next year will depend greatly on 
Jhe experience gained by sophomores Graves, 
Bfest, Golosh, Wilson and Messeck in the past 
Jampaign; the rebounding strength and scoring 
potential of juniors Beebe and Hillenbrand; and 
he contributions to be made by the more prom- 
Sing members of the Junior Varsity who compiled 
10-8 record under Coach David Grills.

A Typical Typing Class 

In accordance with the theme of this year's TATTLER, "The 
Year in Review, " it is essential to include the real purpose of 
any school in any year --education. The curriculum at Williams- 
burg High School, although divided into three sections --college, 
commercial, and general --still involves one thing on the part 
of every student --hard work. 

On an average school day working students are everywhere . One 
may hear pounding typewriters, smell fuming chemicals from the 
lab, and see excited, enthusiastic faces throughout the building. 
One also may hear the groans of an unhappy student after an exam 
and see intense faces, struggling with involved math problems. 
These are the many facets of educational activities in our school

Debate Club 






The Debate Club, under the direction of Mr. Herbert Montebello, 
had a relatively successful year despite several obstacles . Last ' 
year Williamsburg dropped out of the Connecticut Valley League, 
and we were forced to start this year with an all -novice team . 
Hence, our team was competing with third and fourth year varsity 
teams from other schools . 

The debate resolution this year was: Resolved, that the federal 
government should adopt a program of compulsory arbitration of 
labor -management disputes in the basic industries . 

Other activities for the year included: a debate clinic at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts, several practice debates at Frontier 
Regional High School, and a two day invitational tournament at 
South Hadley High School . Team members also served as time 
keepers at a college tournament at the University of Massachu- 
setts .

Williamsburg was one of several schools 
in the Eastern States that sent repre- 
sentatives to this mock-congress. The 
bill presented by Williamsburg students 
was concerned with deceptive packaging 
and labeling of consumer goods .

Slaves served ad- 
vanced Latin stu- 
cents 




The Latin Banquet- -Cena Romana 

The highlight of the year for Wil- 
liamsburg's Latin classes is the an- 
nual Latin Banquet . Organized by the 
second-year classes, the program 
features a Roman style feast, fol- 
lowed by entertainment in the same 
spirit . Everyone attending wears a 
Roman costume . 

This year the banquet opened with 
the sacrifice of a first -year student 
to the gods . Then the meal itself was 
served, consisting of such Roman 
delicacies as cold cuts, potato chips, 
cake, and, of course wine (tasting 
suspiciously like grape juice) . The 
second year students and faculty re- 
clined in luxury, while their slaves, 
the first -year students, waited on 
them . 

The dinner was followed by the se- 
lection of a king and queen, who 
were entertained with a parade and 
athletic contests . At the close of the 
evening Mrs . McKusick and Mr . 
Buss announced the winners of the 
awards for the best and most orig- 
inal costumes . Everyone enjoyed 
himself, and the first -year students 
are eagerly awaiting their chance to 
put on the next banquet . 



The best -dressed patricians were Afred Cone 
and Wendy Foster.

Our Theme Was Bon Voyage 






On May 28, 1965, our class spool 
sored the annual Junior -Senior 
Prom, a very popular event whicij 
was well attended and enjoyed by 
all . The theme was "Bon Voyage'; 
and the red, white, and blue dec-! 
orations gave the auditorium a 
unique nautical look. Cindy Pack- 
ard was chosen queen, and in hei 1 
court were Dorothy Sylvester, 
Cheryl Blackmer, Renee Bris- 
bois, and Jane Parsons . Our clas: 
will probably always remember 
that night of fun and the Decora- 
tion Committee can never forget 
the day of confusion which pre- 
ceded it .
